G.day Capt. John!...tks for your comments!.....will try to post photos in due course...have only done engine runs and taxys so far.....currently renewing medical..then licence renewal..probably train in a citabria...last flew a taildragger 38 yrs ago (DC3) so.. some work to do!...Re "lik lik baloos'...ie the Papua/New Guinean ..native term for a small aeroplane...it means ...'little pidgeon'..I started flying as a bush pilot in 1970..in New Guinea..a large mountainous island north of aussie...many aussie pilots cut their teeth there!........I believe the term 'balus'..or baloos..(oz slang!) refer to the species...which include the beautiful.. "Bird of Paradise"....which as we all agree..aptly describes the ' RV 'series of a/c....rgds to all..stan ..
